I certainly won't be picky if someone turns up with a 54mm Valkyrie! That thing turns heads ;)

Ok, I'll bring the Valkyrie then.

I've got a stack of cargo crates and some barrels to be carried by your sentinel too.

It's only just percolated through that this will be at WHW.
Apart from notGruss himself, my band of investigators consists of a Conclave sculpt (Gav's, I think?), a repurposed Malifaux model familiar, and a repainted toy spooky witch...
Plus 2014(?) booby prize mechasquig, of course.

From memory, the guys were usually pretty ok with it all as long as we're not flaunting the unofficial nature of the models, right?

Worst case I can just stick them back in the box, but ideally I'd be playing with more than one man and his dog to search an entire asteroid field station.

The only time that I've seen the WHW staff raise the point was when someone left an unpainted miniature in obviously-not-GW resin out unattended.

Painted miniatures in the middle of games have never caused a fuss. Most of the staff don't know the Inquisitor range massively well, and many of us will be turning up with heavily converted or outright scratchbuilt models, making it even harder to spot the interlopers.
I even on one occasion explained to a staff member that my NPC guard were converted from "army men" (a slight lie - they're actually Airfix, but honestly, aside from a slightly higher quality, they're even in the same standard poses!) without trouble.

As long as you're low-key about it, everything should be fine.

S.Sgt Silva Birgen: "Good evening, we're here from the Adeptus Defenestratus."
Captain L. Rollin: "Nonsense. Never heard of it."
Birgen: "Pick a window. I'll demonstrate".

As Marco says it won't be a major issue. You can always borrow somebody elses chaps on the extremely rare chance of any objection.

I thought as much - all will be well.

What time are we expecting to finish up?
Haven't quite gotten around to booking tickets yet.
Looks like leaving Notts at 19:32 will be cheapest - too late? Too early?

Unless Rob has something unusual planned, we normally wrap up about six, and a lot of people will make an exit pretty soon after. (Actually, although it looks like they've lengthened their hours again, they've been kicking us out by six since they had their remodel - given the hall entrance is now through the shop, so couldn't be closed separately)

In any case, if 1932 isn't fine, I'm in trouble, as I've booked a 1910 departure.  (I'd prefer slightly later, but I don't prefer it as much as it would actually cost me).

I'll need to get off fairly sharpish after 6.00pm. As I'm heading back to meet my Fiancee in Southport. So you should be fine with the 7.32 train.

I am in fact that chap called Sam :).

 Forgot that this was a 'clave event, so I'm excited to meet y'all. Unfortunately my own painting speed is far too glacial for me to be able to bring any minis along, mostly because I spend upwards of 36 hours a week in lectures, plus coursework/rehearsals ^^'. Hopefully I'll have something to show in the new year though.

Very much looking forward to my first game of Inquisitor! :)

Hello chap called Sam! It'll be a pleasure to have you along. Bring along what you can, and if you don't have anything on the day we'll have plenty of warbands ready to go so you can have a blast and get to grips with the game!

Unless Rob has something unusual planned, we normally wrap up about six, and a lot of people will make an exit pretty soon after.

I was there a few weeks back and the tables were open til 8 on a Saturday. It might have been a special occasion but I'm hoping we have some overlap. I anticipate we'll be done by 6, but it's nice to have that buffer in case we need to squeeze in an extra turn to get a satisfying conclusion. Myself and my Northern Crew (tm) will be hanging around til they kick us out of Bugman's as we have accomodation booked in Nottingham for the night, so anyone is welcome to stick around afterwards!

As long as you're low-key about it, everything should be fine.

We had this fustercluck a few weeks back, in the centre of the hall and screaming at the top of our lungs for four hours. There were definitely plenty of models in there that aren't GW, but everyone (including staff) that saw it were more agog at the spectacle than could pick us up on any of the characters individually.

I'm not worried ;)

Looks like a good event. I noticed you were using the Sector Mechanicus terrain, how well does that scale for Inquisitor? I've been thinking about getting some for the new Necromunda so if it works for Inq. too it'll be a further incentive.

Unfortunately, due to an undercoating accident (it was possibly too cold when I tried), I won't be able to use Inquisitor Skoll's warband tomorrow. I think the models can be saved, but they'll probably need at least minor repair and it would be catastrophically stupid to rush it.

I'll need to decide whether I'll be using Inquisitor Rhodes or Lady Riemann instead. (Maybe I'll bring both and decide on the day).

That's a shame. Which one was Inquisitor Rhodes? I can't remember (and all your old pics have been photobucketted and can no longer be viewed).
